Amber Luke looked a lot different before she embraced her love for body modification.
When she was a teen, the Australian influencer had a baby face and barely any piercings.
And at the start of her tattoo journey, she only had artwork to her neck, arm, ribcage and thighs.
The model shared a new throwback snap this month – and told Daily Star Online it wasn’t just her appearance that was different years ago.
Amber was diagnosed with clinical depression at 14 and struggled to feel comfortable in her own skin.
Even though Amber looks happy in the picture taken a few years ago, she was battling thoughts of self-loathing.
Amber told Daily Star Online: “I felt very unlike myself. For years I was living in a body that I hated.
“This picture makes me feel very uneasy, almost… anxious.
“I hated the feeling I felt when I was her.”
Thankfully, the model’s mindset changed when she found her passion for body art.
She uses the modifications to express herself – and she feels much more confident as a result.
Amber added: “I finally decided to stop self-hating and started loving myself instead.”
Nowadays, Amber has geometric designs all over her chest, portraits on her thighs and bold face tatts.
She also has body modifications including dermal piercings, inked eyeballs and a split tongue – none of which are visible in the old photo.
Even though the Instagram star has altered her appearance a lot over the years, it’s unlikely she’ll be stopping any time soon.
Previously, she revealed she's getting her eyeballs tattooed for a second time.
Last month, she told her 52,800 followers: “I have the most exciting news oh my f***.
“Next February, I am travelling to Geneva, Switzerland and am booked in with @gatobodyart to re- tattoo my eyeballs!
“I’m not telling y’all what I’m doing with them – it’s going to be a surprise.
“I’m keen to do it properly this time!!!”
She's also expressed an interest in getting more blackout tattoos done this year.
